In Matthew 3:11-17 Jesus came to be baptized by John the Baptist. Afterwards the holy Spirit descended like a dove on Jesus and a voice from heaven said: “This is my son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased”.
Exodus 23 continues with the writing down laws about justice and mercy, how you are to help even someone who hates you. God instituted the Sabbath laws; in six years you may harvest your fields, but the seventh year you will let it go fallow. (In my childhood Sweden this seven year planting cycle was still practiced by many farmers.) The seventh day rest was to be practiced by all and applied to work animals as well. Moses also defined the three annual feasts, the feast of unleavened bread, the feast of harvest and the feast of in-gathering. Finally God warned of worshiping other Gods.
In Exodus 24 God confirmed His covenant with the people, and Moses went up to Mount Sinai and stayed there 40 days and 40 nights, a long time for the people to be without a leader.
In Exodus 25 Moses told the people make an offering, and out of this offering was made three furnishings for the tabernacle, the ark, the table and the lampstand.
Exodus 26. God described to Moses how the tabernacle was to be built.
One thought on “Day 37 of reading the Holy Bible in 365 days.”
Thank you very much for this wonderful work.
My wife decided to read the bible but she has vision issues and I concluded that the best way for her would be a PowerPoint file (that I silently decided to make by myself following the assumption that it wouldn’ t be available anywhere).
Before starting this herculean work, just decided to give a shot and google it.
Here I am and giving my ever lasting gratitude to you for saving me thousands of hours and allowing my wife to start immediatelly her spiritual journey.
God bless you infinitely.
